Asian and Pacific Islander Student Alliance (APSA)

We, the students of University of California at San Diego (UCSD), come together to provide a forum to deal with the problems and concerns of UCSD Asian and Pacific-Islander (API) students, especially those deemed “underrepresented” by the Student Affirmative Action Committee (SAAC); to try and create an environment where issues such as those political, educational, cultural and social can be addressed; to increase awareness about our API history and heritage within the university and the community; to unite as a community resource to represent a common voice and thereby empower ourselves; and to serve as a support network for building bonds and addressing differences between students. The Asian and Pacific-Islander Student Alliance is a non-profit organization.

Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanola de Aztlan (MECHA)

M.E.Ch.A. is a political voice for UCSD. It takes part in a series of political events through out the year, such as Raza Awareness Week. M.E.Ch.A. also honors many cultural holidays such as El dia de los Muertos and Las Posadas that occur in December; creating an atmosphere for social interaction. M.E.Ch.A. also strives in bridging the gap between High School and College by working directly with the youth of our community. This is accomplished through our annual Raza Youth Empowerment Conference, weekly outreach events, campus tours, overnight programs, and one on one mentoring. In realizing the importance of giving back to the community, we recognize that we are at UCSD to be successful students. We strive to build a community that is strong and united. The year is finalized with our Raza Graduation. Most importantly, throughout the year we build a strong network of people who are currently aware students, activists, and friends.

Queer and Trans* People of Color (QT*POC) at UCSD

Queer and Trans* People of Color (QT*POC) at UCSD was established in 2000 by a group of Queer students of Color FED UP with racism in the queer community, and with homophobia and transphobia within cultural organizations. With this, at the core of QT*POC are our commitments to struggle and our commitments to activism. We recognize the intersections of our multiple, beautiful, and sometimes confusing identities, as well as the related intersections of social justice movements. We create a SPACE--a social, political, academic, and cultural environment--to enhance our members' entire self-being and holistic wellness.
